9Round Is Being Recognized in Club Solutions Magazine
9Round is being recognized yet again for its incredible growth spurt. This time we are being featured in Club Solutions, a popular health and fitness magazine. In fact, they claim to be the leading resource for health and fitness club owners, and they are the only magazine that is dedicated completely to business ideas, strategies and solutions that serves the entire health and fitness club industry. Club Solutions has created one of the most powerful marketing mediums to carry any health and fitness centered company’s message, and 9Round is honored to be featured in their latest issue.
Shannon Hudson founded 9Round in 2008 and began franchising a year later. 2013 was a busy year, we grew from thirty seven locations to one hundred locations with many more in the works, and we were ranked number 443 in Entrepreneur Magazine's “Top 500 Franchises” list, which is an honor and accomplishment in itself. However, with our recent growth spurt, we were able to move up 141 spots to become newly positioned at number 302 in the “Top 500 Franchises” list. 9Round is anticipating even more growth in the years to come. “We have 102 locations as of February 12, 2014,” said Hudson. “We are hoping to have over 200 locations by the end of 2014, and by the end of 2017, we plan on having 1,000 locations opened.” 9Round is not limiting itself just to the U.S., with locations starting in Canada, and continuing to Mexico. Australia and New Zealand are also in sight.
It is exciting to see our company recognized for its growth and success in the fitness industry.
